Bob Ambrosino and Lyric Benson; Photo - NYTThe New York Times Styles section tries to deconstruct Lyric Benson and Robert Ambrosino's relationship, mainly focusing on the differences that emerged in the past year: Benson getting more acting work, her job as hostess at Balthazar, just being closer to her goal of success, while Ambrosino is painted as a strange, drifting figure, though a "king of New Haven," a little fish in the New York City pond.

The Times includes many casual pictures of Benson, playing up the youth and beauty angle, as the Styles section would.

Gothamist on the crime, her near-fame, and her memorial.
